  1. 57th Speed Record Attained By The Gulfstream G280
    The Super Midsize Gulfstream G280 executive jet has added another speed record to the books. This is now the 57th record in relation to the G280 to date since coming into the market in November of 2012. The record involved a flight between Guernsey in the Channel Islands and Teterboro in New Jersey taking just 7 hours and 26 minutes. The super mid-size business jet departed Guernsey Airport at 7:54 a.m. local time and arrived at Teterboro Airport at 10:20 a.m. local time, completing the 3,216-nautical-mile/5,956-kilometer flight at an average speed of Mach 0.80. “This flight showcased the G280’s outstanding takeoff performance,” said Scott Neal, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Gulfstream. “Guernsey’s available takeoff distance is less than 5,200 feet, yet the G280 was able to make this trip with plenty of room to spare. One of the many benefits of the G280 is being able to use smaller airports and runways around the world without sacrificing range and speed.”
  2. The G280, which has amassed 57speed records since its November 2012 entry into service, has a range of 3,600 nm/6,667 km at Mach 0.80. It is powered by two Honeywell HTF7250G engines, each of which provides 7,624 pounds of thrust. The engines can propel the G280 to a flight level of 43,000 feet/13,106 meters in approximately 20 minutes and feature reduced emissions, longer maintenance intervals and decreased noise levels. The aircraft also has the best cabin in its class, with high-definition entertainment systems, industry-leading cabin sound levels and 19 super-sized windows. Pending approval by the U.S. National Aeronautic Association, the city-pair record will be sent to the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale in Switzerland for recognition as a world record.
